AER Statement on Climate Change

Dr. Guy Seeley
June 7, 2017

At AER, we have been deeply engaged for decades in advancing many aspects of the fundamental scientific understanding of weather and climate. Our work is widely known as a definitive set of methods for evaluating the radiative properties of current and future atmospheres, and these methods are used every day in the world’s major weather forecast centers.

The scientific consensus showing a significant set of risks to human society from unconstrained carbon emissions is clear. Efforts to address global emissions are valuable and important. We are very pleased to see broad attention to the science on these topics, and we strongly concur with the Verisk statement which can be found <here>.
